I just added another free guide to the page, no sign up required!

********************************


Thanks everyone for the help getting started.
Figuring out the "right" niche made all the difference.

In 2 weeks I contracted over 4k in selling my services offline.

3 customers to get this amount, and 2 of the jobs took less than 4 hours of work.

Thank you thank you thank you fellow warriors for the amount of knowledge that is posted on this board.

    Congratulations Anne - what an inspiring story!

    Just read one of your previous threads "Really need to make it work", which I guess is the prelude to this one?

    Do you mind if I ask if the "right" niche was one that you'd originally considered, or did you have a complete shift after reviewing your situation?

    When I started out, I thought that choosing a niche would be the easiest step of all - you already know the answer to that one!

    Good luck - hope your success continues,

    All the best,

    Brian

    The KEY now is to making sure that those businesses are WELL taken care of and that they KNOW without a SHADOW OF DOUBT that what you've done for them is profitable.

    It's relatively easy to get offline companies to "sign up" to whatever services that you have to offer, but the hard part is:

    1. Getting them to be repeat customers
    2. Getting them to spread the word about you and your company

    Well Done!!!

    That's what I love about offline consulting - it's easy money and you can make a full-time income in part-time hours.

    "Just read one of your previous threads "Really need to make it work", which I guess is the prelude to this one?"
    Yes, Brian, that was before I chucked caution to the wind and just started hitting up businesses, where I got 2 search engine upload jobs.
    Then I hit up one nonprofit where I got a nice juicy website build. That job also is going to require a lot of monthly service (which I need to bid on separately).
    I'll tell you how I picked the businesses to approach in another thread because the Nonprofit needed the job done right away and I'm working on it.

    The search engine jobs are actually not just uploading the sites to search engines, but they both took less than 2 hours each and were a few hundred bucks a piece.

    Matt - The total between the 3 jobs will be 4k.

    I'm so glad that I have scoured these forums - I wouldn't have thought up my approach or how I picked the businesses with the different services without it.

    I will happily share more about all of it and share with everyone, but I need to get some work done now.

      There are 2 types of people in this world....those who get it and those who don't. The ones that get it know exactly what we are talking about. The ones who don't are left scratching their heads.

    My apologies for the lack of information on my site this week. I was doing some serious restructuring and had to pull it for a little while.

    If you want the guides, they are available without a required email , and also the rest of the information that is on my site is available to read now.

    Thank you for the very kind emails and notices as well - I am so happy to be able to share this information with you all!
